What do Unite For Sight volunteers do? 
Our Global Impact Corps volunteers come from very diverse backgrounds,
including those interested in public health, medicine, international
development, social entrepreneurship, and the social sciences. While
volunteering abroad, they support and learn from the partner clinics’
talented medical professionals who are social entrepreneurs addressing
complex global health issues.  Global Impact Fellows gain a
comprehensive understanding about the complexities and realities of
global health, social entrepreneurship, and international development.

Impact Fellow volunteers work with local doctors to eliminate patient
barriers to care for patients living in extreme poverty.  They assist
with patient education, visual acuity screening, patient intake,
distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local eye
doctors, and other important support tasks.  They also have the
opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors. 
Additionally, volunteers may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an
optional program for those interested in pursuing global health
research. For example, we currently have volunteers pursuing research
studies about medication management, the use of visual resources for
patient education, traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers
to care.

What do volunteers say? “I gained a vast
basin of knowledge not only about eye health, but also on the
healthcare infrastructure, patient interactions, and management systems
of the developing world. Reading about health issues in the news or in
class became stark reality during my summer in Dhenkanal, and I now aim
to reinvigorate my efforts to study and contribute to the field of
international health.” Pallavi Basu, Global Impact Fellow.  See more
